Why should anyone want to curtail purchases?
Some of the best sales are right now and will be in the coming days!

Not sure what the market is in Florida, but I'm not seeing any deals on either side of the coasts. With wine sales increasing 30% due to the pandemic I'm not sure there is any incentive to lower prices.

Woodland Hills Wine Company had a 15% sale. Their prices are usually good without the 15%.
The sale is over now but I think others will follow.

I guess we will just have to wait and see.

As a side note, when I'm not drinking, I don't feel as much desire to buy. And it's not just about tipsy clicking!

I've also never bought a bottle of wine on Berserker Day, so I might even be able to make it through the month. We'll see.

Went to pickup dinner on Jan 2 and decided to stop by Spruce and browse. Out with 4 bottles of 19 German Riesling. Haven't bought anything online though.

We have threads on how we should buy more wine because producers in Champagne and other regions are hurting and now threads where people are taking pride in not buying wine. I have not bought any wine yet in 2020 but plan to do so when I see what I want to buy.

I’m out. I had a company service award that I converted to debit cards and then to K&L gift cards since they don’t expire, but my willpower expired and I bought a couple of expensive bottles to drink soon.

So far so good. I entered some of Jonathan's stealth December purchases into CT today and that helped scratch the itch.

Haven't bought a bottle since early November. Could be any day if a compelling price/wine combo pops, but it could be months.

Looks like my last purchase was NYE, so I *might* make it to next weeks Occidental release but that will be as far as this drags on.

Held out until today.

Got a Wine Back Reward from Vinfolio that is only good through January, so picked up another bottle of 2010 Grand Puy Lacoste.

Between winery releases and retailer offers and Berserker Day, it just never stops . . .

Just went to the grocery store to pick up something for the missus and bought four bottles of wine for myself. Some women buy purses and shoes when they've got spare change. Me? I buy wine.

The 17’s were birth years for my son so they went straight to the offsite. If they are anything like the 16’s they are excellent & nowhere near ready

hey, I bought 08 Dom in a grocery store last year. Every bottle counts except cooking wine! And we can argue that you bought it—just didn’t get it. But we will let you back in . . . knowing you will be out soon!
